Carpet Track Building.

Q: What kind of carpet do you run on? A: Grey... haha.

I've been asked many times. So here is the real answer.

The carpet many use in Japan is a cheap durable outdoor style carpet. It's thin but strong. You will find it in a DIY store.

It doesn't have any flame retardant so the cars slide on it very well. If it has a chemical impregnation, the cars heat it up and it becomes glue like.

This particular one came in 6 colours and was about $13 a meter for 180cm (6ft) wide. So do the math and build yourself a track.

Do it...

I just might... one day. Even your garage area would be cheap. About 100$ would do it.

  1. That's a really cool idea.

    If it's outdoor carpet, what happens when it gets wet? Does it just dry pretty quickly in open air?


Got a question or a comment. It doesn't hurt to ask.
